                                    Private Schools

If you are interested in applying to private schools, I encourage you to call or visit the
web sites of the schools that you wish to apply to immediately. You can obtain
information on application requirements, open houses, scholarships, etc. which I cannot
provide. Every private school is different and it is your responsibility to research that
information. Catholic Schools require that your eighth grader take the TACHS Test (Test
for Admission to Catholic High School). There is a fee and you must register your child
for that exam yourself. You can register for the TACHS on line at ,
or you can call 866-61TACHS. If your child currently receives extended time on
exams, she/he is also eligible to receive extended time on the TACHS provided you
complete page 10 of the TACHS Student Handbook and return it to me immediately
so that I can attach the required documentation and send it to the Archdiocese by
the October 7th deadline
